  1. Just read your contribution to FP. Wow! Please keep writing. Talent like yours is not to be wasted. Being strange in a strange land is great material. I know, I have been living it for 25 years. But it seems you also have the courage and curiosity to be different and still fit in. Keep on…
    Best wishes from Colmar, France
